Halloween on State Street and more

October 25, 2022 8:59 AM

The City of Madison will once again be working to make State Street and downtown Madison a safe and enjoyable space for celebrating Halloween.

Events that will be occurring, include:

Wednesday, October 26

  • Downtown Madison Family Halloween State Street and Capitol Square trick-or-treating for young children and their families from 3:00 – 6:00 PM sponsored by Madison's Central Business Improvement District.
  • Hayrides around the Capitol Square from 3:00 – 6:00 PM sponsored by Madison Parks.
  • Movies with Madison Parks showing Hocus Pocus from 6:00 – 8:00 PM near the top of State Street.

See Halloween Activities for more information.

Saturday, October 29

  • Wisconsin Union Directorate Film Committee's viewing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show at 10:00 PM in Shannon Hall.
  • Claudio Simonetti's Goblin Performing Suspiria at the Orpheum Theater starting at 8:00 PM.

Other opportunities for spooky fun all around Dane County can be found here.

Monday, October 31, no planned events.

In the past few years, the City has moved away from a formal/sanctioned event for Halloween, also known as Freakfest, and again there will be no formal event this year. There is also no UW football game or homecoming planned for Halloween weekend this year. To facilitate physical safety, a glass ban has been instituted on State Street for Halloween weekend, and Streateries will be closed at 6:00 p.m.

A note from Public Health: Heading into the Halloween season, the best protection against severe illness due to COVID-19 is staying up to date on vaccines. No matter what kind of celebration or activity, it is encouraged that people consider their personal risk of getting seriously ill (i.e. age, underlying health conditions). It is also important to understand the factors that can either lower or increase that risk, including length of exposure and ventilation.
